Our Cooking Methods

Gently Cooked Fresh Food

Why We Sous-Vide Cook Our Fresh Food?

Sous-vide is a unique cooking process where nutrients aren't lost to cooking water like with traditional cooking methods. It creates a food that's nutrient rich like raw but safer since it's fully cooked. 

To sous vide cook our food, we mix together our ingredients and portion them into BPA-free packages. We then cook them under non-boiling water for over 2 hours. Once cooked, the meals are cooled and frozen to preserve freshness. 

What are the Benefits of Sous-Vide Cooking?

This long-slow cooking process is used by leading chefs around the world because it enhances flavor and cooks proteins like meats and fish perfectly.

For pups, there are several key benefits to cooking the food this way:

  1. More Flavor: It enhances taste and creates a natural meat gravy pups love.
  2. More Nutrients: It retains nutrients since everything cooks inside of a bag and can't be lost to cooking water.
  3. More Healthy Protein: This unique cooking method allows us on average to pack in 50% more protein than other gently cooked brands. Why does this matter? Because if you're not using protein, you're often using carbs as fillers in food.

Dry Whole Food Cubies

How We Prepare our Cubies

We make our Cubies using 3 step process.

  1. Gently Cooked Sous-Vide (just like our frozen food!)
  2. Diced into cubes
  3. Slowly Air Dried

Slowly air drying our food allows us to remove moisture from the Cubies without applying heat to them. This allows us to maintain the nutrient profile of the ingredients while creating a food that's much less processed than other dry foods like kibble. The Cubies provide a convenient way to feed your pup without compromising on nutrition or flavor.
